By Aaron Humes: Lauded as they are for their selfless service, our medical professionals are also expected to lead by example in wearing masks publicly, practicing social distancing, and otherwise doing their share to retard the spread of COVID-19.
One female doctor attached to the Dr. Otto Rodriguez Polyclinic in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, was caught out with another individual without her face mask and was charged by police.
She pleaded guilty to the offense on Tuesday as did the other individual, and was fined $1,000 and cost of court – the fine could have been as much as $5,000.
